This Website may contain forward-looking statements that reflect Inspire’s current expectation regarding future events and business development.

YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE WEBSITE AND ITS CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.

INSPIRE MAKES NO WARRANTIES THAT YOUR USE OF THE CONTENT WILL NOT INFRINGE THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN SUCH CONTENT.
11. NO MEDICAL ADVICE
You should not consider content on the Website to be medical advice. You should not rely on Content on the Website to make medical decisions. These decisions should only be made in consultation with your healthcare providers. Content found on the Website is for informational purposes only and is not intended to replace the relationship between you and your physician or other healthcare provider. The “Learn More About Inspire” feature is designed to educate you about commonly occurring insurance coverage limitations and the FDA indications for Inspire therapy so that you can make a more informed decision as to whether or not to contact a physician for evaluation for Inspire therapy. This service is for general informational purposes only, and you should be aware that Inspire offers no opinion or advice relating to the scope of coverage that may be available to you, as to whether Inspire therapy is suitable or not for you, or as to whether it is advisable for you to consult a physician about your sleep apnea or any other concern.
12. FIND A DOCTOR
The Find a Doctor feature is provided for your convenience in locating a physician who offers Inspire therapy, and, while each physician listed has completed an Inspire training course, Inspire does not endorse any particular physician or practice listed on this Website. Inspire makes no representation or warranty that any particular therapy is safe, appropriate or effective for you, or that any particular healthcare provider has a particular level of skill.
You understand that the providers accessible through the Find a Doctor feature are not affiliated with Inspire, except that some of them are Inspire customers or implanters of Inspire product. Any opinions, medical or otherwise, expressed by the providers are based on their own experience and judgment, and not necessarily those of Inspire. Providers do not pay a fee to Inspire to be listed in the Find a Doctor Feature, but are selected based on their completion of Inspire training and their commitment to good customer service. You will be directed to providers located within a 150 mile radius of the zip code you provide or state you choose from a dropdown list. While a failure to meet Inspire’s selection criteria will result in exclusion from this list, there are many reasons why a provider may not be included (e.g., it has not applied), so you should not draw negative conclusions about a provider not on the list. Inspire seeks to assure that all listed providers have their own systems in place to support good customer service, but Inspire does not guarantee or endorse their professional skills, nor does it impose any requirements on the way they render professional services. Inspire does not recommend or endorse any providers and specifically disclaims all responsibility for any liability, loss, or risk, personal or otherwise, which is incurred as a consequence, directly or indirectly, as a result of acts or omissions of any provider on the site.
13. SMS Messaging
SMS Messaging is used to send educational information about Inspire, remind you to contact a physician in your area or to provide other relevant Inspire content and information.
You can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text “STOP” to the short code. After you send the SMS message “STOP” to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from us. If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time and we will start sending SMS messages to you again.
If you are experiencing issues with the messaging program you can reply with the keyword HELP for more assistance, or you can get help directly at [email protected].
Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. As always, message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. Message frequency varies depending on your activity. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
14. LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
INSPIRE, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, CONTENT PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, AND DIRECTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF REVENUE OR INCOME, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, OR SIMILAR DAMAGES, EVEN IF INSPIRE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL THE COLLECTIVE LIABILITY OF INSPIRE AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, CONTENT PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, AND DIRECTORS TO ANY PARTY (REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED $100.
